Using advanced voice recognition and security technology, the Wells Fargo Advantage Funds® Automated Phone System allows you to quickly and easily access Wells Fargo Advantage Funds quotes, account information and perform trades and transactions on your Wells Fargo Advantage Funds accounts. Speak your responses and the Automated Phone System will take care of the rest. The Automated Phone System is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-800-368-7550.

Getting started

Getting started with the Automated Phone System is easy. All you need is the last four digits of your Social Security number (SSN), your date of birth, and one of your Wells Fargo Advantage Funds account numbers.

To begin registration, enter or say the last four digits of your SSN and your date of birth when prompted. After confirming your SSN, you will be asked to enter one of your account numbers. You can either use your touch-tone keypad or speak your account number.

Once your account number has been confirmed, you will be asked to select a four to eight digit Personal Identification Number (PIN). When selecting your PIN, choose a number that only you know and is difficult for others to guess. Try not to use repeated or sequential digits (e.g., 1234 or 5555). Your PIN cannot be the last four digits of your SSN.

When you have finished selecting your PIN, you are ready to get started with the Automated Phone System. The voice prompts will guide you through the entire system. It's quick, easy, and secure. Once you become familiar with the system, feel free to interrupt at any time with your request.
